What are Ceramic Braces?
Advantages and Disadvantages
Patients seeking a straighter, healthier smile have more orthodontic options to choose from than ever before. Invisalign® is often a consideration for those who do not like the appearance of traditional braces. However, the clear aligner trays are unable to correct major orthodontic issues. Ceramic braces, on the other hand, are more subtle than metal braces, but are also able to treat severe cases of malocclusion, rotated teeth, crowding, or vertically misaligned teeth. The ceramic brackets enable us to perform significant orthodontic correction with more discreet treatment.
We use a variety of specially designed brackets to match your teeth. The brackets come in a range from tooth-colored for darker teeth, to semi-translucent and clear for lighter shades of teeth. We are also able to use wires that are frosted, or white in color, to further blend with your smile.
